Dr Marie-Pascale L.-Robert, DVM
Born and raised in St-André-Avellin in La Petite Nation, Dr Robert spent her childhood dreaming about caring for animals. At 3 years of age, she was already telling her mom that she would become a doctor for animals! After graduating from the University of Montreal’s Veterinary Medicine Faculty in 2009, she moved to Aylmer and met Dr Michaud, who invited her to join the Eardley Veterinary Hospital team. Seven years later, she joined forces with Dr Rompré to become the business’ co-owner and succeed Dr Michaud in her work. Although passionate about her job in general, Dr Robert has a special interest in surgery and dentistry. She likes developing trusting relationships with her clients and 4-legged patients alike, and always aims to treat every animal as her own. During her free time, she enjoys spending family time with her two kids, her dog, and two cats, or replenish her energy by doing her favourite activities: traveling abroad, kitesurfing, dancing salsa and playing volleyball.
Dr Mélina D.-Rompré, DVM
Dr Rompré graduated from the Veterinary Medicine Faculty in 2009. She practiced several years in Gatineau before joining the Eardley Veterinary Hospital in 2015. Dr Rompré particularly likes preventative medicine, as she gets the opportunity to discuss with owners and help them keep their pets in good health. She also enjoys internal medicine and practices general surgeries. Since April 2016, Dr Rompré has been the lucky co-owner of the Eardley Veterinary Clinic with Dr Robert. Together, they work hard to keep offering quality services to their patients as well as a positive work environment for their staff team. In her free time, Dr Rompré enjoys running. Her senior Standard Poodle Wilson was even for a long time her companion during the short distance races.
Dr Annie Tourangeau, DVM
Dr Tourangeau obtained her diploma from the Veterinary Medicine Faculty in June 2007. Since her graduation, she has been part of the Eardley Veterinary Clinic’s team! She is currently offering us her services part time and feels blessed to have such a great job. She believes strongly in continuing education and devotes herself to expanding her knowledge on the many aspects of her work. She is careful to offer a personalized and empathetic service to her clients. On top of being a fulfilled mom, her “animal” family at home is made of two Labrador Retrievers who bring daily challenges and learning opportunities. Kuiper, an excellent retriever bursting with energy, enjoys participating in duck hunts and Boston, calmer and more anxious, likes to put his nose everywhere. During her free time, she loves any outdoor activity, regardless of the weather, and focuses on all moments spent with family and friends.

When she isn’t working, she is contributing in the many chores on her family farm where she takes care of cattle and all the pets she keeps welcoming there; horses, rabbits, chickens, cats and dogs.
